Michael Jackson : on the wall by Nicholas Cullinan( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Jackson is one of the most influential cultural figures to come out of the 20th century and his legacy continues into the 21st century. His significance is widely acknowledged when it comes to music, music videos, dance, choreography and fashion, but his considerable influence on contemporary art is an untold story. Since Andy Warhol first used his image in 1982, Jackson has become the most depicted cultural figure in visual art by an extraordinary array of leading contemporary artists. For the first time, Michael Jackson: On the Wall will bring together the works of over forty of these artists, drawn from public and private collections around the world, including new works made especially for the exhibition
Vasarely : hommage by Musée d'Ixelles( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before there were such terms as Op art or Kinetic art, Victor Vasarely (1906-1997) was making abstractions that dazzled the eye with their chromatic boldness and energetic geometries. His painting "Zebra," of 1930, is widely considered the first work of Op art. The Hungarian-born Vasarely settled in Paris in 1930, working as a graphic designer (a calling whose requirement for clarity and precision permeated his art). From early on, Vasarely favored biomorphic shapes, sharp edges, two-dimensional space and a limited palette, but it was in the early 1950s that his canvases began to articulate the extreme rigor for which he became famed. In the 1960s he pursued printmaking, in an effort to make his work more democratically available. With almost nothing on this Op art pioneer currently in print, this volume offers an important opportunity to rediscover Vasarely's rich and radically modern art

Jonathan Meese, Daniel Richter, Tal R : the men who fell from earth by Roberto Ohrt( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three international heavyweights in contemporary painting will join forces when Danish Tal R and his two German colleagues and friends, Jonathan Meese and Daniel Richter, hold a joint exhibition at Holstebro Kunstmuseum, under the title 'The Men Who Fell from Earth.' In recent decades, with an almost unrestrained energy, these three artists have made a name for themselves as significant innovators of the painting tradition. Their inspiration is often drawn from the borderline of what is generally acceptable, and the result is fabulous imagery that demonstrates great colouristic and expressive strength. Although there is sometimes a lot of humour present, the subjects addressed by Jonathan Meese, Daniel Richter and Tal R are both serious and urgent"--Publisher's website
La Passion selon Carol Rama by Carol Rama( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ouvrage publié à l'occasion de l'exposition éponyme présentée au Musée d'Art moderne de la ville de Paris, du 3 avril au 12 juillet 2015.00L'ouvrage est l'occasion de découvrir cette artiste italienne née en 1918 dont la pratique irrévérencieuse et inclassable traverse quasiment tout le XXe siècle et a flirté aussi bien avec le surréalisme que l'art concret, l'art informel, l'arte povera ou l'art brut. La férocité de son travail s'incarne tant dans des aquarelles et collages que dans des installations réalisées à partir d'objets trouvés, ongles, textiles, pneus ou fourrure, obligeant ainsi à revisiter l'histoire de l'art classique. A travers des essais rédigés par les commissaires d'exposition, un entretien, des interventions d'historiens de l'art, d'artistes contemporains et d'écrivains, l'ouvrage met en perspective l'oeuvre de cette artiste incontournable pour comprendre les mutations de la représentation du corps et de la sexualité

Olafur Eliasson : pentagonal landscapes : EMMA, Espoo Museum of Modern Art, 8.2. - 21.5.2017 by Ólafur Elíasson( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Finnish and English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Olafur Eliasson? Landscapes is a publication on Olafur Eliasson?s work 'Pentagonal mirror tunnel', a recent acquisition to the Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection, and the related 'Olafur Eliasson: Pentagonal landscapes' project organised at EMMA.0The book?s articles are written by art historian Riikka Stewen and architect Juhani Pallasmaa. Riikka Stewen discusses in her article the thematic framework of 'Pentagonal mirror tunnel' and shows how perception and optics, illusion and disillusion are key to Eliasson?s work. Architect Juhani Pallasmaa writes in his article on the dialogue between science and art and how the two are reflected in Eliasson?s concept of art.0Olafur Eliasson is a conceptual artist whose art encompasses the domains of architecture, design, science and philosophy, and more specifically phenomenology. Eliasson?s art creates multisensory experiences and his creative process is based on an experimental approach to art. Experimenting, collaborating and interest in research are corner stones of his work. Eliasson counts among those contemporary artists who engage their audiences directly with the work of art. He sees his role as that of a catalyst who creates new connections between art and science.00Exhibition: EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo, Finland (08.02.-21.05.2017)
Joseph Beuys : outside the box( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The core of the 'Joseph Beuys. Outside the box' exhibition are the unique collection and archives from Museum Sztuki, Lódz, the oldest European museum of contemporary art in Poland. The exhibition is produced and curated by EMMA and Museum Sztuki. Museum Sztuki?s collection of works by Joseph Beuys is a creation of the artist himself. The compilation, called 'Polentransport', is one of his most spectacular actions. It is an act of solidarity with Poland which in 1980?1981 saw a momentary release from the grip of the Communist party. 10 million citizens joined the Solidarity movement. Enabled and inspired by this uprising, Beuys went to Poland in 1981. He brought along his personal archives (printed material, posters, photos, drawings, prints and objects) documenting 30 years of his production. He donated the entire collection, contained in a wooden trunk, to the museum in Lódz. 'Polentransport' was intended to promote change, as a symbol of free creativity and action.0The exhibition highlights Beuys as a topical artist. Beuys?s ideas of peaceful change, activism or recycling immaterial conceptual art are still relevant today. His art spurs us to consider what we can do about ongoing injustices.00Exhibition: EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Finland (08.02.-21.05.2017)
Vasarely : die Wiederentdeckung des Malers = the rediscovery of the painter by Victor Vasarely( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A key figure in kinetic art (or ‘Op Art’ as in optical art), Victor Vasarely attained distinction in twentieth century art history for his prolific abstract geometric pieces. A true master of composition, Vasarely combined, connected, swapped and assembled geometric elements with an accomplished vision, advocating formal minimalism and optical effects. This hommage invites you to rediscover Vasarely’s rich and radically modern work

Nykyaikaa etsimässä : käsikirja = In search of the present : handbook( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and Finnish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art celebrates its 10th year by starting a new exhibition series 'In Search of the Present'. The first exhibition immerses in current issues, as well as considerations on who we are and where we are going. 0Artworks by 22 international artists are displayed. In the Search of the Present Handbook opens the main themes of the exhibition through the artworks. 0The exhibition concept was inspired by the 1929 collection of essays by Olavi Paavolainen, an influential Finnish modernist writer and thinker, in which he discusses the essence of the modern human in the modern, changing world. His thinking offers astounding parallels to questions we are asking ourselves today. 'In Search of the Present' turns the gaze towards current issues that are shaping art and society at large and encourages viewers to participate in the public debate.00Exhibition: EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Finland (12.10.2016-08.01.2017.)
Jaume Plensa : unelmien ympäröimänä = In the midst of dreams = Omgiven av drömmar by Jaume Plensa( Book )

Birger Kaipiainen by Harri Kalha( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Finnish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Birger Kaipiainen went his own way. Although his unique, mysterious fantasies delighted contemporaries, they also estranged the advocates of modern design. Art circles wondered at his unrestrained decorativeness. This aesthete extraordinaire in his own time appears in another light today: a singular visualiser and bold visionary who created his own fantasy world in ceramics. During his half-century long career at the Arabia factory, he enjoyed a freedom to fulfil his creative visions untrammelled by the demands of industrial production.
